Having just seen "X2," I'm amused by some of the miniscule differences between the movie and the advertising. (Spoilers ahead.) I noticed that during the attack on the school, Wolverine was hit with three darts in his neck as he ran toward the camera and slashed at it, but I don't remember seeing these in the same shot in the commercials, probably to avoid spoilers. Having appreciated how much this shot and this shot look like they're right out of a comic book, I was waiting for them in the film, but I never saw them. Most amusing, of course, was the shot of Mystique sliding backwards on the floor through the closing doorway. In the commercials, her hand is flat on the floor with the palm down. In the movie, it's up, with the middle finger extended. Real cute, 20th Century Fox. Any other differences you noticed?

Please share your comments about the film once you've seen it. That's the real reason I created this topic. :-)

Oh, sorry, totally forgot to check back in. Anyway, I really didn't notice the subtle differences between the commercials and the actual movie. I really liked the movie though, it was definately better than the first one. I totally expect that there will be an X3. I for one can't wait for that. The only problem, is Storm probably won't be in that movie. Halle Berry will be too expensive to bring back. Other than that, I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars...

Mike: I remember reading that all of the stars signed contracts to do three films in the series. Still, I wouldn't be surprised if Berry bought out of her contract; she doesn't seem to enjoy the part. I wouldn't mind seeing her go: I read X-Men comics for years, and I know Storm inside-out, but when I look at the screen, all I see is Halle Berry in a stupid-looking wig, not Storm.

Jackie: How can you say that about all men? Personally, I'm offended. You know, some of us are making a real effort to keep our excitement about the sequel in check.

What Makes a Movie?

Among AMPAS's rules for a movie to be eligible for an Oscar, it must have played in at least one theater in Los Angeles for at least one week during the calendar year before the Oscar ceremony, and it must have done so before it is released in any other format (television, streaming, DVD, etc).
